.:Feature Friday - Not Just A Housewife:.

Go here to get your free 8x10 canvas!

Hi! I'm Stacy from Not JUST A Housewife and I am so excited to be posting here at Sumo's Sweet Stuff. Isn't this the cutest blog???

I am a stay at home mom to 4 little boys and I love it! I was a tom boy growing up and I don't think I would know what to do with a girl if I had one. I think it is important to take time for yourself and to have hobbies. Otherwise you just might go insane! Here are some of the things you can see at my blog.

I love the TV show cupcake wars so I have come up with some of my own recipes like rootbeer float, strawberry chocolate, peaches and cream, and chocolate malt. You can see them here and here.

If I can't find the right fabric I just paint my own!

Here are some of the fun Fall and Halloween things we do at our house.

We grow pumpkins and scratch words or pictures on them when they start to turn orange and the pumpkins scar where we scratched. It looks really neat!

Don't have pumpkins? Make squash monsters!

Terra cotta pots make the perfect Frankenstein head. Add a candle and put them on your porch and you have cute Frankenstein lights to greet your trick or treaters!

I have instructions on how to make a pumpkin topiary.

As a family we made these paper mache pumpkins. My boys loved it!!!

See how I fixed up our old bathroom for around $75.00!

I {heart} power tools. I love to build things. It is easier than you might think. Check out my tutorial on making these shadowbox shelves.

I even attempt to sew. . . sometimes. Here is what I call a Soap Buddy. It's a terry cloth pocket that velcros shut. Put your bar soap inside and lets your kids get clean!

Thank you Sumo for letting me post here today! Come and visit me sometime at Not JUST A Housewife :)
